I sit here this morning with the window wide open, the cool breezes gently caressing me and the birds singing their good morning. It is not every day that I wake with a feeling of peacefulness and it feels wonderful! Yesterday I sincerely allowed life to flow as it would and it was just perfect!
I have decided that there are a few 'best' ways to achieve this peace. One is that when my mind starts to chatter and create situations that make me feel less than ok, I pause and send LOVINGINGKINDNESS meditation to those who bring me troubled thoughts - may they be safe, may they be happy, may they be health, may they share love and compassion, may they be at peace. Life is too short to hold any kind of animosity toward another fellow human being. I just count my blessings - family and especially our new grandson...special friends...and self - an amazing character full of love and compassion!!

Here is the link...truly gave me pause...and peace...and self awareness!!
Lately my camera and I have been quiet - within - resting and reflective. I have allowed myself to know that this is OK...that Fall is my time for transition - Mother Nature's as well - a time to purge, cleanse, allow some of the old to 'die' and make room for the new.
